Well, I bought the phone yesterday from Carphonewarehouse, had to pay the handset only as payasyougo was stopped.... Anyway, I have now taken it back today for a refund.... personally I prefer the iphone.... sorry folks! I did find the battery absolutely useless! I know.... it is a smart phone and battery is bound not to last long.... but half a day! nah... not for me the iphone battery is quite poor but better than this one... The actual phone was in itself very nice... internet etc very fast... cameral was extremely good. I think I will wait and see if a new iphone comes out later... if it doesnt will have a rethink.

Its just a preferance, whether u like the huge 'google' word at the back of your phone, or if u prefer a trackball to an optical pad..just a preferance,
Does anyone know if this does the Voice to Text same as Nexus. As for some reason I can't walk and type, equilibrium issues, and this would be a great aid.

The "slower camera" you are talking about is because of an automatic shutter speed, it decreases shutter speed which in return decreases the amount of frames per second it captures, this leads to the slow down. I would think that this would occur on every camera except if they have the ability to record greatly in low lighting conditions, which I doubt in a phone camera, hope this helps =) I am soo looking forward to the HTC Desire lol
hi,there is anyone can answer me?
i already used htc magic and i think its great but there is a problem for transfer file via bluetooth, is desire already fixed this thing?
and one more, when you want to install application, is desire still always use internal memory? or we can intall it at storage card ?
I ordered this phone in March. Now it's been delayed 3 times and no delayed again to 13th April~
Very disappointed in this
really though if the battery is really what people are saying that it lasts 24hours(hopefully not on standby, but with constant usage) then id say thats pretty damn good. Im using the Htc Dream right now and its battery sucks, if i kept it with constant usage with data i dont think it can last the day so i dont mind charging the desire at the end of the day

Does the camera slow down in dark conditions like it does on the hero?
also, have you noticed any difference in sound quality when listening to music?
Excellent phone, beautiful screen and very fast.
But awful battery life!
I just upgraded today from HTC Hero to HTC Desire. It feels like a Hero on steroids, the web experience is better (speed, flash, resolution), the usability is better (felling, buttons, options), the display is awesome (more light, more color). I'm very satisfied.
had for a week now and it just keeps getting better and better as i spend time arranging the phone how i want it. only down side was the hassel of getting my music from itunes onto another player. but thats all done now and my music collection is free from the evil itunes. rock and roll desire you have killed the iphone 3gs..... lets see what apple can do next....
